Contents

Description

Yanyu is a slender woman who appears to be in her 20s. When she first joined the circus Yanyu's clothing was 'minor noblewoman who has seen better days'. She added a few nicer pieces after traveling with the circus a while. During book six she swapped out all the older stuff for much more high quality items from her home country of the Illuminated Precints.

Background

Yanyu is the widow of a soldier of the Dragon Army. She learned the barbarian tongues when her husband was stationed at first the southern and then the northern walls. She is originally from the Illuminated Precincts, where she learned a thing or two about Astrology.

Items

  • Clothing appropriate for a noble woman from the Illuminated Precints who can afford quality but nothing overly showy. Yanyu tends to favor blues and pastel greens.
  • A small amount of quality jewelry such as jade pendnats and bangles.
  • Writing materials
  • Astrological notes
  • Toddler clothes and toys
  • Leather travelling satchels
  • Warm, tidy, respectable outfit aquired for 70 zhu in the Roof of the World, done in the local style. It's done in shades of pale grey and some of the outer pieces have fur lining and trim.
  • Rose Bow: a +3 die bow of light green wood, with laquered paint up the spine of a rose vine, in darker green and dark pink.
  • Horses: Flower of the Morning and Sunbird, each with horseshoes of +1 puttering range
  • Clothes of +3 status verses one person aquired in the City of Light
  • Clothes of +3 charisma verses one person aquired in the City of Light
  • Jade bead bracelet with 12 color changing beads (should be available by the end of the month and year of the Magpie)
